The N.C. Department of Transportation held an open house and public hearing Aug. 8, 2017, on a proposed project that would widen I-440 – between just south of Walnut Street in Cary and north of Wade Avenue in Raleigh.
The formal hearing included an explanation of the location of the project's design options – referred to as detailed study alternatives – land acquisition and relocation requirements as well as project procedures.

Resources for Local Property Owners
Although the N.C. Department of Transportation works to minimize the number of homes and businesses displaced by a road project, it is inevitable, in many cases, that a certain amount of private property is needed.
